With so many mods out there, it could be really devastating if Bethesda decide to make them unusable on the new Skyrim Remastered Edition.
Bethesda in their official announcement confirmed that they are going to keep everything intact so that players could continue to enjoy their old mods on PCs without any issues. Mod support for Skyrim is coming to Xbox One and PS4 consoles with this edition. It is a welcome addition as console gamers will have the opportunity to explore dozens of old mods created throughout the years. In other words, the mods which are available on Windows PCs will work on any console. Players will be able to download and enjoy them as soon as the remastered edition gets launched.
The new special edition Skyrim was announced at the E3 2016 event. It is to get launched on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Good news is that PC gamers who already own the base game with all the DLCs or the legendary edition can download the title for free. They don’t have to pay additional costs to own the remastered game. Significant improvements will be made to the game including new god rays, snow effect, atmospheric depth, textures, lighting and other visual improvements.
Longtime fans of Elder Scrolls Skyrim were intimidated by the new improved version of the game. They were wondering whether Bethesda will allow them to make use of the mods available. The developer assured them that they are not going to remove support or make them unplayable on the new title. It was confirmed by Peter Hines, Vice President of Marketing at Bethesda.
Some mods might be incompatible not because the team disabled them but the textures and the type of files used to develop it could not run in the new version of the game. Mod developers who originally worked on it are expected to rework and make it run on Skyrim Remastered edition. The PC version is going to be 64-bit which will not only support all available modifications but also work with all save files available.
Elder Scrolls V Skyrim Special Edition is slated to get launched on Xbox One, PS4 and PC platforms on October 28, 2016. All mods will have same copyrights and nudity restrictions as it was on the older game. It is expected to look really good and much better giving reasons for gamers to hop on the Skyrim dragon one more time.
